2022 has seen some changes at the Creative monets challenge. The first one is that we are mpving to a monthly challenge, and the second will see the return of the themed challenge. Our first theme of 2022 is a sketch challenge. Please look at teh Creative Moments challenge blog for some great and varied interpretations of the sketch and of course to enter your own card!
Thank you to
for sponsoring this months challenge. I have used a free digi called Tulip Wreath and there is a fantastic variety of digistamps on the Beccy’s Place site. The digi is coloured with Promarkers and the backing papers were from ViviGade.
is designed for St. Valentines day but I was making Christmas cards and the pattern on her dress put me in mind of a row of Christmas trees. I snipped out the valentine’s heart and mounted with Christmas trim upcycled from one of last year’s cards. Don’t you just love it when digistamps are super versitile? Have a look at the Creative Moments challenge blog for more inspiration with this digi.
It comes with backing papers but I chose to use some autumnal bits from my stsh to back the image. The image was coloured with Promarkers and then Spectrum Noir pencils to enhance in places – especially the black dog, which is a job to colour! I might add a sentiment when I have decided who will receive this card.
Our second son was 18 yesterday. I made this card using a Mo Manning digi image and papers from the Very Fine Chap line from DoCrafts( I have had them for years!) I printed a greeting but the happy 18th came from a pack of cake toppers.
Today is my Mother-in-law’s birthday so I made this card using a Hunkydory free gift! I know free – look how lovely it is! I added the gems from my stash and the sentiment is upcycled from a card I received on my birthday – such a great match.
We are self isolating so can’t see her today but wishing her a very happy birthday.
This card is for a very dear friend. She her husband and her son love to walk their cocker spaniel across the fields in all weather. I used stamp set from Hunkydory called A Boot-iful Day . The tennis ball came from a freeset that came with a magazine and represents not only the dog, but the fact they met at a Tennis camp. I stamped onto water colour card and used water colours to complete.
I have made a series of cards for my sister’s birthday tis week and you will see various ones over the coming week. Today’s is made using Hunkydory, from one of their Matt-tastic lines. I have double folded one of the backing cards and used one of the toppers. The age and sentiment are from Hobbycraft and the ribbon is re-purposed from an old gift bag.
